The city has met the requirements for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program, which permits residents to purchase flood insurance coverage.
Coverage is available for most walled and roofed buildings that are primarily above ground and for the building's contents. The insurance limit for single-family homes is $35,000 and $10,000 for the contents. The limit for other buildings is $100,000 for both building and contents. Most renters can insure the contents of their residence.
For more information on the National Flood Insurance Program, call the city's Public Works Department at (213) 854-7327.
